Bolton Wanderers are delighted to confirm the signing of Yanic Wildschut on loan from Norwich City.
The 26-year-old moves to Macron Stadium on a temporary deal for the duration of the 2018/19 season and becomes the Whites’ fifth signing of the summer transfer window.
A former Netherlands Under-21s international, the winger spent the second half of last season on loan at Cardiff City as the Bluebirds won promotion to the Premier League.
Coming through the youth ranks at Ajax, Wildschut’s first taste of English football came when he joined Middlesbrough in September 2014 following spells in his homeland with FC Zwolle, VVV Venlo, SC Heerenveen and ADO Den Haag.
Joining Wigan Athletic on loan in October 2015, the move was made permanent the following January with the forward’s efforts winning him a place in the PFA Team of the Year as the Latics won promotion as Sky Bet League One champions.
On the move again in January 2017, he signed for Norwich in a £7m deal before finishing last season in South Wales.
Speaking to bwfc.co.uk after joining the club, Wildschut said: “It feels great to be here. I spoke to the manager this morning and he gave me a good feeling - he made me want to sign for Bolton Wanderers with what he said to me.
"I have been in England now for four years and I think I know how the league works. Hopefully I can help the club to have a very good season in 2018/19."
Manager Phil Parkinson added: “I am really pleased that Yanic has signed for Bolton Wanderers and he will be an excellent acquisition for us.
“He offers real pace and power and I am sure he will excite our fans.”
